with totally non-Federal entities to provide for the construction, 
rehabilitation, operation, maintenance, or use of all, or portions of, 
the Denver Federal Center as described in section (XX), or such other 
activities related to the Denver Federal Center as the Administrator 
considers appropriate. For purposes of this chapter, a lease of Federal 
real property, including improvements thereon, shall be referred to as 
a master lease.
    ``(b) Terms and Conditions.--A master lease entered into under this 
section--

        of the selection process and to protect the interests of the 
        United States;
            ``(3) may provide a lease option to the United States, to

                entity; and
                    ``(C) that such non-Federal entity may not execute 
                any instrument or document creating or evidencing any 
                indebtedness unless such instrument or document 
                specifically disclaims any liability of the United 
                States under the instrument or document; and
            ``(7) shall include such other terms and conditions as the 
        Administrator considers appropriate.

master lease entered into under this chapter, the Administrator is 
authorized to convey the interest of the United States in the property 
covered by the master lease to the non-Federal entity by sale or 
exchange, if the Administrator first determines in writing that such 
conveyance is in the interests of the United States;
    ``(b) Other Authorities Not Affected.--The authority to enter into 
a master lease under this chapter shall be in addition to, and not in 
lieu of, any other authorities of the Administrator to convey interests

chapter shall not be subject to--
